Irudhi Suttru – Movie review

maxresdefault

.

Prabhu (Madhavan) is a foul mouthed, arrogant but one of best boxing coach in India. His attitude transfers him from the national academy of Hisar to Chennai with a false sexual harassment charges. He starts training women boxers in Chennai but doesn’t see any grit from any of them. One day he sees Madhi (Rithika) a wisher women who has the talent and the spirt which could be make her the best boxer. But Madhi doesn’t take boxing seriously, and Prabhu has to bribe her to come for training. How Prabhu makes Madhi a star and what problems they face makes the rest of the story.

A boxing or even a sports story in Tamil film very rare, and many films deviate from the main theme and end bad. But Sudha and team have made the film short and perfect; the film never deviates from the main theme, though predictable and overdone in few places it just moves in a steady pace. Madhavan is just perfect for the role and Rithika is just dominates the whole film. special mention for nassar for his role as asst coach. Songs and music are done well and support the film. Cinematography by Siva makes every scene pleasurable. Satish Soorya’s editing makes the film crisp and fast and never allows the audience to lay back. Irudhi Suttru may not be a great film but there is something deep which touches everyone’s heart. I give it 5/10

Gethu – Movie Review

image
Movie starts with the introduction to a high profile assassin called the ” bull” ( Vikranth) getting his next assignment to kill a scientist in the next 30 days. Then we are shifted to KumiI where our Hero Sethu ( Udaynidihi Stalin) a librarian living peacefully with his Father Thulsiraman (Satyaraj), mother and sister. His Father the high school P.T. Master runs into trouble with the local councillor and his brother who run a bar near the school premises. Sethu gets into a fight with the brothers when his family gets threatened . The next day one of the brother is found dead and evidence make Thulasiraman the suspect and he is arrested. Sethu starts to investigate the murder along with his police friend (Karunakaran) when they stumble upon a bigger conspiracy behind the murder, how they solve it is the rest of the story.

What’s starts as a interesting thriller , fades off into thin air . Story wanders without a path and ends as predicted and dull. It’s happy to know that Udaynidhi has come out of comedy and tried an action thriller, but his dead and emotionless acting tells us that he is not ready for it. Amy Jackson just comes in as a glamour doll, and doesn’t make any impact on the story. Vikranth as an actor has more potential but is wasted even without a decent dialogue in the film. Film doesn’t comply with its own title and just ends up being a failed thriller . I give 2/10

RajiniMurugan – Movie Review

Sivakarthikeyan’s-‘Rajini-Murugan’-Release-date

Rajini Murugan ( Siva Karthikeyan) is a idler living in Madurai with his parents who are school teachers . He and his friend Thotathri(Soori), often get into trouble with their antics. Rajini Murugan Is in love with his childhood sweet heart Karthika ( Keerthi Suresh) but a foolish mis-understanding in the past between their fathers keeps them apart. He realises its high time he change his attitude and starts a business along with his friend. Even though he works hard,none of business survive. Finally his grandfather Ayyankalai ( Rajkiran) comes forward to help him, he asks Rajini Murugan to sell the ancestral property and start a business with his share. For that he has to bring all his relatives around the globe and complete this task, when a new problem arises. How he manages to fight this is the rest of the story.
Rajini Murugan turns out to be a nice comedy drama which the whole family can sit and enjoy, Siva Karthikeyan and Soori combo works perfectly and Keerthi Suresh gives a decent performance. A good ensemble of a cast makes the film complete. But the duration of the film and lack of a good screenplay makes the film a never ending noodle. Comedy helps in sitting through the film but becomes repetitive and dull after some time.The highlight of the film is the cinematography by Balasubramaniem who manages to keep every frame a masterpiece . Songs give a brief relief in between but too many of them make them uneasy. Overall Rajini Murugan keeps the audience come out on a smiling note which is a plus for any film. I give it 5/10

Kathakali – Movie Review

image

Story is formed in Cuddalore , which is under control of Thambha (Madhusudhan Rao) a local don. Thambha with his two brother in laws tries to keeps every business in the town under their control . Even though Thambha is surrounded by enemies , he has local people supporting him treating him as a King . Amudhan ( Vishal ) who is returning home from abroad for his wedding ,is meeting his family after 4 years.We are briefly told about a feud between Amuthan’s family and Thambha which had left Amuthan’s father disabled permanently and his family troubled. Which is also one of the reasons why Amuthan had left Cuddalore. While Amuthan is busy in his marriage arrangements,he hears the news that Thambha has been murdered and he is one of the suspects. With police chasing him, Amudhan fights to clears his name and finds out who killed Thambha .

Vishal often tries to experiment in different roles and chooses themes which engross the audience till the last minute, this is also one of them. Director Pandiraj gives us a decent thriller with twist and turns keeping the audience guessing till the end. Casting has been carefully chosen and decent performance even though they are a whole lot of them.But the main plot of the film takes it own time to come out, the first half is wayward and most of the scenes with Catherine ,Karunass and Vishal combo could have been avoided. The tempo of the film which raises in the end of the first half doesn’t continue in the second half till the end. I give it 4/10

Thaarai Thappattai – Movie Review

 

image

The story revolves around a folk dance group lead by Sannasi ( Sasi Kumar) and their lead dancer Sooravali ( Varalakshmi Sarathkumar). Sooravali is madly in love with Sannasi , and even though Sannasi loves her, he is reluctant show it. The troop struggles a lot to survive as every aspect of entertainment is commercialized these days. In the midst of survival , Sooravali gets a marriage proposal and Sannasi makes the ultimate sacrifice for Sooravali to have a normal life. What happens to Sooravali and how the troop survives without their lead dancer is the rest of the story

Its definitely the maestro’s show all the way has he dominates with his mesmerizing music. His music not just compliments but glorifies each and every moment in the film. Varalakshmi lives in the character and dominates the first half completely . But lack of strong screenplay and a wayward second half makes the film incomplete . Though some may say that Sasikumar has underplayed his character, for me it looks dead and weak. R K Suresh’s character was over acted and repulsive. Lack of concentration on the main theme makes the film fragile. I give it 3/10

Wazir – Movie Review

wazir4

Danish Ali ( Farhan Akhtar) is an officer in the anti terrorist squad, tragedy strikes in his happy life when he loses his daughter while chasing a terrorist. After losing his daughter and separated from his wife his emotions take him over and he also gets suspended. In an unusual circumstance he meets Pandit Omkarnath ( Amitabh Bhachan) who brings him out his grief. Omkarnath who has lost his wife and his two legs in an accident, asks Danish to investigate the recent death of his daughter who died under mysterious circumstance. How Danish battles his own ghosts and also solves Nina’s death is the rest of the story.

A movie with good performances from the lead actors makes Wazir a watchable entertainer for the audience. Amitabh becomes the character as always and charms the audiences. Farhan too plays his part but is no match for Amitabh.Apart from the acting the dialogues were written equally well. The first half breezes thru but a weak and predictable second half makes the film dull and boring. Screenplay too becomes brittle and breaks apart in the second half. Bejoy Nambiar does weave a decent thriller but ends up being too predictable and lucid. I give 5/10
